Cape Greco & Sea Caves

Cape Greco, also known as Cavo Greco (Italian for "Greek cape"; Greek: Κάβο Γκρέκο) and Poyraz Burnu in Turkish, is a headland in the southeastern part of the island of Cyprus. It is at the southern end of Famagusta Bay and forms part of Ayia Napa Municipality.

It lies between the towns of Ayia Napa and Protaras, both of which are popular tourist resorts. It is frequently visited by many tourists for its natural beauty. It is a protected nature park. From the high points on the cliff that rests at the cape one can view amazing sights out to sea.

According to local legend, it is also the home of the 'Ayia Napa sea monster'.

Cape Greco is a National Forest Park with unique flora and fauna and is under the administration of the Forestry Department of the Cyprus Ministry of the Interior.

There are many caves along the coastline from Agia Napa to Cape Greko National Park. Many people come here to snorkel and the locals come here before the crack of dawn to fish. The Palace caves and the Smugglers caves are deep passages in to the cliffs which are only accessible from the sea. Some extend as deep as 240 feet in to the rock.

During calm seas and at low tide it is possible to swim and even walk in to most of them. Although they have a rock-strewn environment the waters are wonderfully clear. Boat trips regularly pass by daily. There are spots of deep water amongst the rocks where spirited folks engage in the extreme sports of cliff diving/jumping
